Texas rowing team takes team title at Longhorn Invite

Posted April 27th, 2019


The No. 4 Texas rowing team won three races and took the team title in the Longhorn Invite at Lake Walter E. Long on Saturday.

“Our team had a good day, and this was certainly a step in the right direction as our First Eight had two really solid races,” coach Dave O’Neill said. “We have a good mix of experience and youthful energy in that group, and they’re becoming a better crew every day.”

The First Eight and First Four boats each won. The Second Eight boat took second, as did the Second Four boat. The Third Eight boat also won.
